Research Highlights

The purpose of this series of country briefs is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of agricultural characteristics integrat- ed with socio-economic variables across countries.

Our new spatial output indexes show that 16 to 21 percent of the increase in U.S. corn output over the 128 years beginning in 1879 was attributable to spatial movement in production.

Authors use crop and impact models to examine which current and potential agricultural technologies offer solutions to fight hunger.

Study evaluates the potential impacts of 'Drought Tolerant Maize for Africa' project run by CIMMYT and IITA in 13 sub-Saharan African countries.

Model-estimated yield variability of rainfed maize with high input for 1981-2010 (30-year period). Values are for 5 arc-minute grid cells.

Median travel time to human settlement of 50,000 or greater population.

The purpose of this series of country briefs is to provide a comprehensive and standardized view of agricultural characteristics, integrat- ed with socio-economic variables across countries.

This technical note describes the methods and data sources used to generate the results reported in: Pardey et al. (2013).

We estimate global wheat losses over the past 50 years absent investments in research to limit impacts of stem rust and discuss how this can inform decisions about “right-sizing” research investments.

This tool visualizes the long-term (1960-2014) gridded monthly precipitation, near-surface temperature, and Palmer Drought Severity Index time series for sub-Saharan Africa summarized across districts.
